Hiking the Trails For an Unforgettable Experience :

If you are the adventurous type and you want to try roughing it, you can opt for a mountaineering escapade with your friends. Traipsing through grasslands, swamps, and forests will surely give you a refreshing experience far from the urban lifestyle that you have gotten used to. Walking along the sides of the cliffs will offer you that rush of adrenaline that makes it even more exciting and unforgettable. Certainly, a hiking and camping trip will not only energize you but provide you that much-needed exercise and renewed closeness to Mother Nature. Not to mention all those breathtaking sights you can view when you're literally "on top of the world".

You can opt for an easier climb with a lower altitude if you are not that experienced in this kind of outdoors extreme sport. Nevertheless, reaching the summit shall still be your ultimate goal which will fill you with a sense of wonder and achievement upon getting there. Just imagine standing on the peak, just a few meters above the hazy clouds, looking over the other mountain ranges and fields and the city lights below. It is even more amazing if you witness the sunset and the sunrise from this spot!

It is important for you to do your research, checking out different mountains near your area that are often visited by climbers. Oftentimes you will find mountaineers' blog entries on the net, describing the place and how to get there, how much you will need, what to bring and expect, and their complete itineraries. You can do a day trip if it is just a small mountain, or you can accelerate your adventure by staying overnight.

The basics include a reliable tent (if you will be camping), a durable pair of rubber shoes (preferably hiking shoes) which will save your feet from blisters, extra shirt/s for changing when you get all sweaty, the right kind of jacket for the expected temperature at the summit, snacks to be used as trail food, lots of drinking water as well as water for cooking (find out if there are water sources along the way), cook set for cooking your meals, handy utensils, wet wipes and tissue, hat or cap to protect you from the sun, and rain gear for an emergency.

Before you explore those mountains, do not forget to exercise regularly at least two weeks ahead in order for you to develop the strength and endurance you will need for this expedition. This is especially essential for people who have a sedentary lifestyle and are not used to strenuous physical activities. If you want to avoid not being able to walk properly and go up and down the stairs days after the climb, then better put on your work-out gear before doing that ascent. Good luck and enjoy it.
